THE NEW METRIC SET, 

PROPOSED FOR COINAGE. 

The “ Stella ” or Four Dollar Gold piece. Obv., 
Head of Liberty, surrounded by the hieroglyphs 
★ 6^ g*3* s*7*c* 7^g*r*a^m* s^^ 
Beneath the bust, 1879. Shows a 5-pointed 
star, with the inscription on it, incused, “ One 
Stella-400 Cents.” Around the star, “ United 
States of America, E Pluribus Unum. — Deo Est 
Gloria — Four Dol.” Brilliant gold proof. 

The “ Goloid Metric Dollar.” Obv., Head of Liber- 
ty. Above “ E Pluribus Unum ” 7 stars to the left, 
6 to the right. Below, 1879. Ijl In a circle of 38 
stars, “15, 3 — G. 236. 7 — s. 28 — c. 14 Grams.” 
Around it, “United States of America — Goloid 
Metric Dollar — Deo Est Gloria — 100 Cents.” Bril- 
liant Goloid proof. 

The Silver Metric Dollar. Obv., Head of Liberty ; 
(Barber’s design for the Standard Dollar in 1878, 
which was rejected, but generally conceded to be 
superior to the accepted pattern.) “ 895 . 8 s. 
4 . 2 — G. 100 — c. 25 Grams,” surrounded by a 
circle and wreath of corn, &c. Above, “Deo Est 
Gloria.” Around, “United States of America, 
One Dollar.” Brilliant silver proof. 

jgp" This is one of the original 15 sets, submitted to Congress. As to 
the value, I need only say that a gentleman at Washington refused, 
some time ago, $100 for one of these original sets. The pieces will be 
sold separately, without reserve, to the highest bidder ; but should there 
be a fair bid for the lot, when the first piece is put up, the right is 
reseiwed to sell the three pieces as a set. The pieces are the more desir- 
able, as there is not the least doubt that they will not be accepted for our 
coinage. 

The adoption of the Gold piece instead of improving our coinage would 
be a decidedly retrograde movement. Not merely that, for the old design 
of the United States coinage some 75 years ago, was more beautiful, 
and more practical for the purposes of circulation. The “ Goloid Dol- 
lar ” being the size of a /iaZ/-Dollar, would open the door to wholesale 
counterfeiting, and deceiving the unwary, as its general appearance does 
not indicate the little gold in it. And as to the Metric Dollar, the 4.2 
parts gold in it, may just as well be left out. But the most important 
objection is, that the acceptance of “goloid” would force the U. S. 
Government to pay a royalty to Mr. Hubbell, the “ original inventor” 
as he styles himself, of this metal for coinage. 

All we want is a Silver Dollar, worth 100 cents, instead of 90 cents, as 
at present; with a chaste head of Liberty on obverse, and a genuine 
looking eagle on reverse, instead of the present frightened-looking bird, 
with clipped wings and pulled feathers. As to the Legend, why not
